We held the first East Anglian author fair at the end of July at the fabulous Coconut Loft Art Gallery on Waterloo Road. This gave locals an opportunity to ‘meet the author’ with twelve authors from across Norfolk and Suffolk, including: Suzan Collins, Helen Thwaites, Caroline Way, Hannah Precious, Ian Robb, Terry Tarbox, Pam Finch, Bronwen Grono, Jocelyn Blakey, Helen Milligan, Patricia Peters and Ann Bowyer.
The centrepiece of the event were five newly published authors who had risen to a ‘get published’ challenge set by themselves during our writing workshops last November. We met regularly to provide support and formed the group Waveney Author Group (WAG).
By popular demand the 2nd Annual event will take place next July and an interim ‘meet the authors’ weekend will be held at the Coconut Loft on the 5th & 6th Dec.
Author places are selling well, with only a few places left. For more information pop along to www.getwriting.co.uk
